@spanishbuddha: searching "force sensor", we can see some model. (e.g. https://www.adafruit.com/products/166 Here at 7$)... You need 88 of them, and a processor (or a coprocessor) with 88 analog entry. I don't know if this kind of sensor i

I believe I was quoted 65k to 67k in Canadian dollars for the 2 S6 in our local store. Both were between 6-8 years old and have never been sold. In terms of sound and touch, I didn't find it to be that significantly better than the C6 that I tried.

I am a Yamaha fan but I really don't see all the fuss people make about S6's. To me, Steinway is much better. I feel a bit manic seeing all the praise for this model. Perhaps I am indeed crazy. As far as I am aware, the S6 models don't have the inno

Thank you guys for all your replies, much appreciated. @alerique It would have been the velocity if it had measured the hammer's velocity. My understanding is that the velocity of the key is measured. And this is where the mass gets lost: Both a tin

I did my own stereo test. Using a H2n Zoom in X-Y mode, I recorded A4 and using 1.80secs of the recording (86,400 samples). I analysed the first two partials, one set using a Rife-Vinc 1 window and the other a Hamming window. Rife-Vinc............

I'll check that! >If 100ppm tolerance gives 1 beat in 23 seconds at 440Hz, then, to all intents and purposes, it's bang-on and any kind of calibration will likely not improve this any further. Apparently not so 'bang on', this 23sec beats is ex

This may surprise some, but I bought the new Schirmer Centenial Edition in two volumes a couple of years ago (Vol. Nos. 1982 and 1983). This edition is "newly printed" and is based on the original text edited by Karl Päsler and the order

I think alerique has it. By measuring the velocity v, and with a fixed mass, you essentially have the equivalent of the kinetic energy. Besides, is there an off the shelf, inexpensive, reliable sensor that provides a continuous but variable electrica

Umm, Michiyo-Fir, I was just going through Recital 40 and have encountered your performance of the Nocturne in Eb Major Op. 9 No. 2. WOW, it was simply beautiful. I love that piece, but at this point I think it is a little above my level. Someday!

I guess since piano tones are aperiodic, then there is no "frequency". Of course different microphones will change the amplitude of the partials, but the partials' frequencies will remain the same, though I suppose the "frequency"
